I am the great-grandson of Edker Lee Pope, supposedly born 27 Sep 1885 in Lonoke, AR. Whether this was Lonoke County, or Lonoke as it existed I don't know for sure. The problem I am having is that I cannot locate his father, or the parents marriage to be able to trace further.On his Social Security application it lists a "Lee Pope" as the father. The mother was a variation of "Siney Lucinda Hudson". I know thatEdker's father was killed by a mule while intoxicated when Edker was young. Apparently Siney (Sidney?) remarried. I heard one story that Edker's father ran away from home and floated down the Mississippi when he was young, not that that helps you any. I did find a sister of Edker, who was Myrtle Pope, born 3 Sep 1887 in Arkansas. She married a man by the name of Glen M. Masters, who was born 11 Nov 1894 in Arkansas.

Although I have a book on the Kendalls at home, I am not an authority, by memory, on the family.Helen Lenore Pope was born 8 Jul 1910, FortSmith, AR.I just requested the marriage certificate from Michigan Vital Records two days ago. Edker was going to school there for being the therapist I believe.
